January 2, 2019 -- The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) is developing a new state long-range transportation plan (SLRTP), known as Michigan Mobility 2045 (MM 2045), that will establish a vision and priorities for transportation in Michigan for 25 years.
The plan outlines numerous ways MDOT will provide the public with information, explains ways to ask questions about the plan, and provides ideas for making the plan better.
Top methods for gathering public input on MM 2045 include:
MDOT is seeking the opinions of the public, including a large and diverse group of Michigan residents and stakeholders representing groups with an interest or concern for the state's transportation decision-making process. This includes best practices for targeting and providing attention to environmental justice populations, marginalized communities and tribal governments.
After gathering adequate public feedback on MM 2045, MDOT will share a final draft of the plan and extend invitations for more targeted public engagement activities. This will occur during the second phase of the plan, which begins in May.
The public will be able to view the plan and provide comments on MM 2045 at www.michiganmobility.org. Public comments also can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org, or shared with MDOT's social media sites at www.facebook.com/michigandot or www.twitter.com/michigandot. Comments also can be sent via U.S. mail:
